Description: Your gateway to every Bible movie ever made!
Hollywood has been producing movies based on Bible stories since 1897. Starting with grainy, silent, mini-Passion stories and moving on to The Passion of the Christ and beyond, bestselling author J. Stephen Lang takes you through the blockbusters and the busts.
More than just a catalog listing, "The Bible on the Big Screen" gives movie buffs film credits, running times, and release dates. It answers intriguing questions about motives for making the movies, offers critics' reactions, and provides much more insider information. The book is also richly illustrated with film stills from favorite movies.
Author Information: J. Stephen Lang is the author of nearly thirty books, including the extremely successful Complete Book of Bible Trivia, which has sold over 600,000 copies.
Endorsement: "Lang has given his readers a fascinating history. It is engagingly told by someone who is at one and the same time generous of spirit, biblically faithful, and culturally attuned."--Robert K. Johnston, author of "Reel Spirituality" and co-author of "Finding God in the Movies"
